The Continued Rise Of DEF

The Continued Rise Of DEF

As of July 2012, there were over 600 bulk dispensers located across North America that supply Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) to the trucking industry. In fact, TA Travel Centers of America just announced that it now has over 101 locations equipped with DEF pumps at over 400 fuel lanes; and Love's Travel Stops announced that it now has 782 fuel lanes at 148 locations. With figures like these, it's not surprising that industry experts are confidently predicting that DEF is here to stay, and that it won't be long until it becomes industry standard to sell DEF at every truck stop, dealership and service station in North America.

And as the demand for DEF continues to grow, so too does the need for equipment that has been specifically designed to handle the unique challenges presented in handling DEF. This includes equipment that ensures material compatibility, environmental compliance and safety. In addition, there is also a great need for equipment that helps prevent DEF mis-filling, which can cause serious and expensive engine repairs.
